We stayed one night on a day that had reached 90 degrees. There was no air conditioning in the room and no ceiling fan. We could not keep the 1st floor patio door open so there was no way to vent/cool the room. The hotel is very close to Hearst Castle and is a good choice if it is not... More

Understand what this Motel is exactly, a motel, that's why I've given it 4*. It's got no thrills, however; quick and free wifi yes, consistent hot running water yes, friendly staff yes, comfy bed yes, good location yes! If you are doing the drive from LA to San Fran, this place offers a great location to stop over night. What... More

Enjoyed our two night stay with visits to both San Simeon and Pebble Beach. We used the restaurant for both breakfast meals and an evening snack. Their rooms offer nice ocean views across PCH. The staff was excellent in both hotel and restaurant.

Great view of the sea and nice tables in front of room for morning coffee. Comfy beds and adequate bathroom. Restaurant has good seafood. Price was reasonable and good location. Plenty of parking. Didn't get to use the pool but looked nice. No problems with bedding. Air conditioning didn't work but windows opened.

This hotel is well situated on the PCH near to the Hearst Castle and it makes for a reasonably priced and comfortable one night stay in the area. Hotel staff were pleasant and rooms are decent. The restaurant and bar are readily available but the bar does not have a true "happy hour", however it did offer one drink at... More

This is an older establishment but it is clean & in good condition. I was greeted on arrival, they had all my details and a room had been allocated. Staff were friendly & very... More

Located along the coast in an area I'd call a "hotel strip". Easy one block walk across the street to the beach. Lodge has on site restaurant with reasonably priced items. This is not a 4-star place, but decent room.

When we booked in England several months ago we did not know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by the San Simeon Lodge. The staff were pleasant, rooms were clean and the restaurant served good reasonably priced food. OK he heated pool was a welcome sight after a long journey down the Big Sur.

The room was clean, staff was friendly. This place was just a one night stop over along US 1 traveling from San Fran to LA. The bed was very comfortable. There is also a pool on the property and a small gym, did not use these though.
